Abused children made to feel like criminals and 'prodded like a monkey in cage' by UK authorities - report
Thu, 23 Feb 2017 18:45 UTC
It has been revealed that children and teenagers in Britain were made to feel like criminals and accused of wasting police time, when they informed authorities that they had been sexually or physically abused. In some cases, the young person's story simply wasn't believed.
As a result, Victims' Commissioner, Baroness Newlove, has published a review titled, Are We Getting it Right for Young Victims of Crime?, which shockingly found that children and teenagers were made to feel like criminals themselves.
Where's the outrage: Outspoken liberal George Takei jokingly admitted in 2006 of having a sexual relationship with an adult as a minor
Wed, 22 Feb 2017 18:13 UTC
Takei, best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original "Star Trek" TV series and movies, joined radio host Howard Stern in 2006 for an interview and, unsurprisingly, the conversation turned sexual in nature. Takei began cheerfully talking to Stern and co-host Robin Quivers about an experience he had in summer camp with a male camp counselor when he was only a 13-year-old boy. The counselor, he said, was 18 or 19 years old.
"I was very young," Takei said. "He was about 18 or 19, and he was experienced."
Comment: So while the entire Western media is up in arms over Milo Yiannopoulos' comments about relationships between underage men and adult men, here is a popular liberal pop culture icon downplaying the same situation, and apparently no one in the media had a problem with it.
Program to help addicts instead of jail them so effective, 200 police depts in 28 states have adopted it

As the opioid epidemic came into full force in recent years, one police chief in Massachusetts had a novel idea - help drug addicts instead of throwing them in a cage. This led to the creation of the Angel Program.
As the Boston Globe reports:
"As Gloucester police chief, Leonard Campanello pledged in 2015 that drug users could walk into the police station, hand over heroin, and walk out into treatment within hours — without arrest or charges. The concept of help rather than handcuffs became a national sensation."

Lulu Hutley, who is the joint master of the Surrey Union Hunt, got into a heated argument when activists attempted to stop a hunt on Slades Farm, Guildford, last week.
In a video posted by the Guildford Hunt Saboteurs on Facebook, Hutley is seen telling campaigners that she will call the police if they do not leave the private land.
When some of the 'sabs' insist on climbing over a gate, bringing them closer to Hutley and her horse, the socialite appears to hit a man with her riding crop.
"The hunt claimed today was a 'fun day' as Princess Eugenie was apparently in attendance but that clearly wasn't the case," Guildford Hunt Saboteurs wrote on their Facebook page on Sunday.

Academics at the University of Sussex have come under fire for arranging a meeting called "dealing with right-wing attitudes and politics in the classroom."
Critics have accused researchers and lecturers of trying to clamp down on free expression, but the university insisted the meeting was organized to address extreme views such as racism and homophobia.
The seminar was organized by International Relations Professor Jan Selby, who specializes in the Israel-Palestine conflict and is director of the Sussex Centre for Conflict and Security Research (SCSR).

Liberal hypocrisy: Students at University of Michigan demand school provides 'no-whites' space to organize social justice activism
The College Fix

The demand is one of several lodged by "Students4Justice," who this month ratcheted up campus demonstrations to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launched petition that President Mark Schlissel has snubbed their demands.
The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus.
In their demands, students explain why the new black student center is not enough, "because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color."
Comment: As the student news outlet pointed out in the article, it's incredibly hypocritical of a group that calls for diversity on campus to then ask for a space that completely nullifies diversity and inclusion. Do these liberal snowflakes even hear themselves?
